VBA Filter in External Workbook


Board Regular
Aug 30, 2016
Hi all,

Im trying to use the following code to open a workbook filter sheet 2 by
column b with "5124" and
column C with "Job numer:" "Parent Job:" "Project Director:" "Client:" "Totals for Job"
Then paste the result in the original active workbook.
I havent got as far as the copying and pasting yet but i guess that will be relatively straight forward?
Any help is greatly appreciated :)
Thanks Dan

Dim wbk As Workbook
Set wbk = Workbooks.Open("T:\V-Task\V0000+\200+\V0297\Shared\report.xlsx")
'manipulate the data in the workbook anyway you want, e.g. '
'Variables Declacaration
    Dim Criteria_Val(100) As String
    Dim iRow As Integer
    'Loop Thru the List and Create Filter Criteria Array
    iRow = 0
    While Sheets(2).Cells(iRow + 1, 1) <> ""
        Criteria_Val(iRow) = Sheets(2).Cells(iRow + 1, 1)
        iRow = iRow + 1
    'Multiple Criteria List is Created. Pass it as parameter to Filter
    Sheets(2).Range("B1:B1000000").AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=Criteria_Val, Operator:=xlFilterValues

'copying and pasting code
Call wbk.Close(False)
End Sub
